By the time we got there the tide had covere the spit, but even at slack high tide there was only about 2 1/2 feet of water covering the bar so this will be a great wading point.  The harbor side of the spit has a gradual decline but the ocean side is a sharper dropoff to deeper water.  Given the size of this bar, boat activity should be low in this area
 
This is the best spot I have ever seen in Boston Harbor, aside from one small dock in an undisclosed location....The pictures just don't do it justice.  The bare land on a dead low tide is walkable for at least 1/4 mile from Lovells.  There are several rips that form (in pictures but hard to see) on moving tides from what we saw, and looks very very fishy.

As you can see from the above and below pictures, there is a few rips that form on moving tides that can be fished from land or by kayak.  In the above picture, notice the size of the bar in the background leading all the way to boston light.  The open water space between the point and the start of that bar in the middle of the picture is about 100 yds wide at low tide, what is interesting is that for I would guess 4 or 5 hours, this is the only water passage between the islands.  All the fish have to funnel through that 100 yds to move unless they go around the island because of the size of that bar.  On the right side of that bar a little farther out beyond the picture is another decent rip that forms in deeper water fishable by kayak.  The good part abot this is that most of the island is structure that I think might be best fished on higher tides, but this whole area I think will best fish at lower tides.
